Video Formats in HTML5

HTML5 defines a new element which specifies a standard way to embed a video/movie on a web page: the <video> element.

Some of the more common video formats are:

  • .swf - Shockwave/Flash File (by Macromedia/Adobe)

  • .wmv - Windows Media Player video format (by Microsoft)

  • .mov - Quicktime video format (by Apple)

  • .mpeg - Video compression format (specified by the Moving Pictures Experts Group)

  • .ogg - Open standard container format maintained by the Xiph.Org Foundation. Also includes .ogv, .oga, .ogx, and .spx extensions

  • .webM - royalty-free, high-quality open video compression format for use with HTML5 video.
